are small dukes a problem?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I just had marker dukes (small) put on a pair of 187 high society Free riders. These were the only dukes i could find so far in colorado so i grabbed them on impulse... now i am a bit worried about the fact that they are the small size and not large. My boots are 315... is there any way that this would pose a problem?

no. in fact for your BSL they are the preferred size. sleep easy...

right size, quit worrying

Did you happen to buy climbing skins too? They go together with AT bindings so you can tour. Otherwise, you just bought another heavy, expensive alpine binding with a useless free-heel function.

Other than measuring your boot, where can you find the length? I am assumming a size 27 in one brand would be different than another, even if only by a small amount..... ??

Normally on the inside heel (the outside of the boot) there is a number like: 306mm. That is the boot sole length as it may be different between manufacturers even though the boot is nominally the same size ie 27.

Eg my wife is in a Size 25 Nordica Doberman Pro Boot with a 306mm sole. I am in a Size 26 Krypton Cross with a 306mm sole.


Dukes: http://72.165.45.45/Marker/WEB/www/b...s_freeride.php

Small: 265-320mm
- so you are fine.
Hope that helps.

Yeah. So... They will... maybe... sort of... well...yeah they will...

You're just grumpy 'cause you were scarred for life by those trekkers anyway...

They better, we need to hike something this spring. Mike is thinking about a pair too but he says he needs "an old fat man hiking crew, not just a bunch of teenagers."

Naah -- they also serve as lifters!

That said, I have yet to cut my skins to fit my Duke-clad Bros, so I'm hardly one to talk. It's been that kind of year.
